Best Tasting Brand of Stevia Sweetener, IMHO

I've tried quite a few, and my favorite brand is SweetLeaf. It has no aftertaste whatsoever as other brands may have, and as an added benefit it includes inulin, a dietary soluble fiber which is also a prebiotic. Just check the reviews on Amazon. Add SweatLeaf to your iced tea, oats, whatever and you will be loving it!

Make your own soaps....all natural!

Find your nearest craft store & purchase Soap Base. The cost is around $9.99 lb. Different types, goats milk, olive oil, Shea butter, coconut oil, etc. Purchase a plastic soap mold at $1.99. Melt four squares & add any spice you would like; cinnamon, coffee, lemon juice, cayenne, etc. Get creative & look up the benefits to each spice before adding. Coffee soap is great for wrinkles, cellulite, stretch marks. Cinnamon is good for circulation, acne, blood pressure. Let stand in mold for 1 hour!

Breaking sugar addiction using honey!

One tablespoon of table sugar contains 46 calories. One tablespoon of honey has 64 calories. Though honey may have more calories, we actually need to use less of it since it is sweeter than table sugar. As a result you will consume less amounts of calories than you would with sugar.

Sugar lacks minerals and vitamins & draws upon the body's nutrients to be metabolized into the system. Honey does not contain any harmful chemicals & is entirely utilized by the digestive tract.

Break a Weight Plateau with Green Tea!

When you are stuck in a plateau, drink four or more glasses of green tea a day with a squeeze of lemon or lime! Do not add sugar. If you must have a sweetener, add a little bit of honey!

The tea will detox your body, boost your metabolism, burn fat, increase exercise endurance and block fat absorption!

Adding green tea to your diet twice or more a week will improve your overall health and weight loss efforts!

Celestial Seasonings True Blueberry Tea

100% natural, herbal, caffeine-free tea.

I really like the flavor of this tea -- it's good hot or cold, and is a great way for me to get some extra glasses of water in. It has a nice, strong, flavor -- a little bit tart, a little bit naturally sweet.

Sometimes I just put a bag in my bottle of cold water -- that's enough to flavor the water enough to help me drink it!

Bread is a diet killer

My weight loss sped up considerably when I got rid of the bread in my diet. A lot of diets call for bread, toast, even whole grain stuff still didn't cut it for me. Instead I found rice bread which is very good and chow down on a lot of almonds. Bread is not really a 'natural food", not like fruits and veggies -- so why do we need it?

Cloves, Cinnamon, Folklore & Sugar War

Instead of using gum and breath mints...that have additives and various forms of sugar..I use whole cloves or a tiny piece of cinnamon bark for fresh breath. One bottle of cloves or cinnamon from a discount spice store lasts a very long time! Much less expensive than other breath products and healthier than chemicals. Additionally, there are some interesting articles written on the healing properties of these spices..maybe its not all folklore? emoticon

CVS Lavender Scented Alcohol Swabs

I've been using the CVS Lavender Scented Alcohol Swabs since 8/09 and I love them! I'm a diabetic and need to test, but I hate pricking my finger. The natural lavender smell (not gross like fake lavender) is calming and pleasant. It's worth the extra money. See "more info" for the negative...

Wholly Guacamole Packets

I love Wholly Guacamole as a great source of healthy fats. No strange chemical ingredients, no green "goo" - just natural avocado, onion, peppers, etc., but I'm never able to eat a whole container quickly enough. So, now I buy the 100-calorie packets and freeze what I'm not using.

Tuck a worn sock in your garden. The human scent keeps deer away. Since we're all on SparkPeople, I'm sure there are plenty of work out socks out there! Just keep cycling them out. Natural and animal friendly! :)

Spaghetti Sauce - Reducing Acid

To remove the acid from spaghetti sauce, simmer on the stove and put a big carrot in there. It will soak up the acid perfectly! (My mom taught me this when she made her sauce from scratch, but it works for pre-made sauces, too.)

Good Earth Tea - Natural Sweet Treat

I crave something sweet after dinner and to avoid the extra calories I drink Good Earth Tea. It is naturally sweet so it satisfies my craving with 0 calories. It has become my "favorite" dessert. And they sell it at Costco in packs.
